  • Q:

    Why is the new sod on my lawn turning brown?

    A:

    New sod can turn brown due to early fertilizer application, inadequate watering, soil compaction and lack of contact with the soil. New sod doesn’t need fertilizer for the first one or two months and can get burnt by it. However, it requires more water than established grass and turns brown if it doesn’t get enough. Good contact with uncompacted soil is also necessary for new sod to stay green.
